Why I’m Running

As a St. Louis Public Library employee, I’ve sat in classrooms where teachers explained to me that the school couldn’t afford to purchase paper plates while others funded multiple language programs.

As an openly gay man, I possess compassion and empathy for those experiencing discrimination, because I understand having opportunities taken away from you based on something you cannot control.

As a public service employee for both the city and county, I learned it is possible to utilize a smaller budget to nevertheless offer the same, or even better, quality of services as those with larger budgets.
